Call for papers
"Preservation in the Digital Age"
The Fourth ARSAG International Symposium
May 27-30, 2002, Paris, France

The Fourth ARSAG International Symposium will focus on the
relationships between digitization and preservation of cultural
heritage. The arrival of new communication and information
technologies within cultural institutions has resulted in a
modification of numerous practices. If digitization has allowed
considerable advances in the access and the management of
collections, many questions pertaining to preservation are still
pending. Ten years of practice has witnessed the emergence of
problems that affect all participants in the field (curators,
conservators, conservation scientists, and collection managers).

Please find in the following list the main topics on which we would
like to receive contributions. Authors wishing to present a paper or
a poster should send a summary (500 words), in French or English, to
the secretary of the ARSAG before June 15th, 2001.

    *   What should be digitized and why?
    *   Which digitization policy is suitable for archives?

    *   The digitization of iconographic collections, books,
        manuscripts and prints
    *   Quality control and standards
    *   Cost of digitization

2. Preservation, conservation, and digitization of collections

    *   Perspectives of scientific research
    *   New conservation techniques
    *   Mass treatments

    *   The integration of digitization in conservation practice

Papers will be delivered in English and in French, with simultaneous
translation. The proceedings will be available to all participants
at the beginning of the meeting.
